Integrate Let's Encrypt free SSL certificates
It would be totally awesome if you could integrate Let's Encrypt SSL certificate management (installation, renewal, etc.) into the control panel, so they can be attached to load balancers or even single droplets. This would really help getting started with SSL and making the internet a safer place!
We are already working on it, thanks for the feedback.

It would also be nice to use Let's Encrypt (ACME) with Spaces Object Store alongside the request for CNAMEs. Static website hosting FTW!

I agree but only if you can manage to make it work flawlessly: 12months duration and wildcard support.
I had hard times with Let's Encrypt because of the aforementioned.

I agree - it's a shame it's not integrated in the load balancer. That's the singular reason I'm not using it, to be honest.

This will make things a lot easier than having to use certbot. When will this be implemented?

This is even better than how Amazon addressed the certificate solution. It's nice and all that they got their own CA cert so they can issue free certs to customers, but by using an open solution (LetsEncrypt) you aren't tying your certs to your product, increasing the likelihood of adoption -- and let's face it, why would anyone want to switch away from DO anyways? :D
